Using Canvas To Stage Your Home



https://www.1stdibs.com

Selling your home is stressful. There are lots of papers to keep track of, people to talk to, and at the end, you have to move! But one part of the process can actually be enjoyable, profitable, and even help you with your new home – staging.

Staging your home simply means making it look nice, welcoming, and comfortable to the potential buyers who are looking to buy. Blank walls look less inviting than decorated ones; putting up welcoming art can allow potential homebuyers to envision themselves there. One of the best – and most cost-efficient! – ways of doing that is with canvas art. Canvas art is affordable, totally customizable, and portable, so you can take it to your new home, gift it, or even leave it as a welcome home gift for the new homeowners!

One of the huge appeals of canvas art is it’s so easy to customize. A blank canvas holds a world of possibilities, from famous works of art to art done by children to a special place or quote. Canvas can be customizable for you or to create a fresh, modern, and appealing home for buyers. Children’s art could appeal to homebuyers with children – but without the mess that painting with children can actually entail! - and a welcoming color scheme or some interesting modern art could brighten up and modernize a smaller house. Plus it’s easy to hang without damaging those precious walls!

Canvas art is not only customizable, making it easy to personalize or use to theme a room, it’s also flexible in size. Canvas art can take care of those pesky areas that are too small or too large for standard poster or painting sizes. Prints as small as 8”x8” can provide the perfect little details that stick with a homebuyer, and canvas art as large as 54”x96” can fill a large blank wall and make a ready-to-buy house look more like a home. Canvas art is also gallery quality, which means no frames to buy and easy to hang.

Also, canvas art is fast and easy to order. Instead of searching for the perfect art piece or trying to find a frame to fit a painting, canvas art has a quick turnaround time from design to production to delivery, meaning you can go from “oh no there’s a showing” to “oh yay there’s a showing!” in no time! Even the ordering system is convenient – upload or choose a print and size, as well as options like finishing and hanging, and then you’re ready to order.

Finally, canvas art is very affordable, much less than a similar art piece would be if bought on the art market, especially if you have a large space to fill. With lower prices, you can put more into art for your new house, any surprise closing costs, and maybe even a fun celebration once your house has sold!

But what about your art after you move? As mentioned, canvas art is easy to move and customize. You could easily move your canvas art to your new home – making the cost of new art part of your selling costs – or, if you chose a famous print or local landscape, leave the print for the new homebuyers, maybe with a note and a bottle of wine. Home selling and home buying are stressful, but canvas prints can make for a nice gift or transition to a new home, making the process easier and more enjoyable.

Canvas art is a great way to stage your home to sell. It’s affordable, portable, and customizable – both in image and size – and doesn’t require any difficult hanging or framing to make it look beautiful. It’s also convenient, requiring no knowledge of art or art skills, and quick. With canvas art, and maybe some cookies in the oven, you can be well on your way to selling your home and creating a lasting piece of art.

Top 5 colors for Selling your Home

Paint is probably the easiest and most economical change you can make to your house when it is on the market. A fresh coat of paint can instantly change the feel of your space. When you’re selling your home you want to make the space neutral to appeal to a wider variety of buyers.

With the trend being going towards lighter colors we are seeing white and light creams becoming popular.

Here are the top 5 colors to use when putting your house on the market:
Pale Oak: This color from Benjamin Moore is becoming a favorite color among sellers and home owners alike. It has enough warmth in the gray family to keep it from looking cold and sterile.

READY, SET, DOWNSIZE!

By Deborah Goode, CID
There can be many different reasons for downsizing – but moving is probably the most common. Well, I’m not moving, but the older I get the more I get annoyed at all the stuff I’ve accumulated over the years. Does this sound familiar to you? 
In the past, I would move to a different home every four years. And every time I moved, I would sort through my stuff, donating lots of bags to the Salvation Army, Purple Heart and Goodwill. As you can tell, my love of shopping for clothes, shoes and decorative items has always gotten me in trouble.
However, now that I’ve been living in the same house for the past five years, my “stuff” has been multiplying exponentially. Not only is the crawl space under the house filled up completely, but we now have a garage that has no more extra room – especially for a car. And it's migrating to my two spare bedrooms and the closets are bulging at the seams. I'm really tired of the piles which seem to grow on a weekly basis. And eve…

A Relaxing Bedroom Color

Your bedroom should be calm, it should be a place of rest and relaxation. But all too often it becomes a place to catch up on work on and watch TV. While bad habits are hard to change you can still make your bedroom the oasis it ought to be using one simple trick-- paint it blue.


The color blue soothes the mind and promotes physical relaxation. It is a color that represents peace and tranquility, and it promotes calmness. It has been shown to slow the metabolism, suppress appetite and even to help reduce blood pressure and heart rate.
Blue is one of the most popular colors as demonstrated by the color trends for this year. Three top companies have chosen a shade of dark blue as their color of the year for 2020. Even the darker shades can make a room feel bigger and more spacious. But if you are not ready to paint the whole room in your favorite blue hue, try it on an accent wall or incorporate it into your d├ęcor choices.
Here are some great shades of blue to use in your bedroom:
